Two years ago I left my job in London as a Senior Front-end Developer at irokotv (Africa's Netflix). I sold everything I owned and set off to see the world.
Now I work from Airbnbs in mega-cities and co-working spaces overlooking paddy fields.
I have over 10 years of experience building full-stack websites, both working full-time within start-ups, and freelance for non-profits.
I am a generalist and pride myself on being a mix of both creative and technical. I love being able to take a project from start to finish.
I enjoy designing experiences as much as I do architecting maintainable code.
Design is about context. Who's using your website? Where are they? What are they doing? Design isn't just about a user's digital journey from A to B, but about a person's ongoing experience with your product in real, imperfect and changing environments.
I want the experiences I create to work well for everyone, wherever they are, regardless of their device or connection.
I'm pretty obsessive about:
- Progressive enhancement
- Responsive web design
My current stack includes React, Redux, NodeJS, Express, Babel, CSS modules, PostCSS and Webpack.
As you might guess from that list, I'm really into learning new things. Learning is a large part of why I love being a digital nomad – it gives me the time to learn new technologies, and the opportunity to experience different cultures.
It's an amazing time to be a web developer!
